In just 100 years, the aviation industry went from the first powered flight to a global network that connects more than 1.5 billion people. Over the years, passenger numbers have continued to climb as ticket prices became more affordable. By 2019, more than 4.5 billion people boarded aircrafts to do everything from visit friends and family, explore distant countries, and conduct international business.
The second edition of ATAG’s Waypoint 2050 estimates that 330–445 million tons of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF)—in addition to technological and operational improvements—are required for the global aviation industry to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
